Data Channels

A Data Channel is only required for Remote Access (RAS), Internet Access, and Voicemail connections:

10 PCs accessing the Internet over a single line = 1 Data Channel. If multiple lines are used (Multi-Link PPP) then as many data channels are required (e.g. 128k i.e. 2B channels requires 2 data channels)
10 users dialing in from home on 10 separate lines onto the LAN = 10 Data Channels
Voicemail is an IP application on the LAN (i.e. one data channel is required for each voicemail port used)

Note:  IP end-points do NOT require data channels
